Forms of Tick-Borne Diseases
Horses usually get sick fall to winter. Symptoms are fever, leg swelling, loss of appetite, reluctance to move. Despite antibiotic treatment, horses often relapse in 3-4 weeks. No vaccine is currently available. Tick control is the only preventative option.
Lethargy is the main symptom. Brain swelling can lead to death. Animals who recover can have life long neurological issues. This disease can be transmitted to humans. Transmission is much quicker than Lyme and often goes undetected until severe symptoms occur. There is no cure, just symptom treatment. This horrible disease is now seen in the Northeast US.
While the infected tick feeds over 24-72 hours, a progressive paralysis occurs. Untreated animals can't chew, swallow, drink or breathe, which leads to the animal's death.
Tularemia (Rabbit Fever):
A bacterial disease spread by ticks and deer flies. Symptoms are fever, pain and swollen lymph nodes which often leak pus. Humans can contract the disease through contact or inhaling the bacteria in infected environments. If tularemia enters the lungs, severe pneumonia can develop.
Transmitted as the tick feeds. Horses can be long-term carriers of the disease. Once clear, they can relapse after strenuous exercise or any immune-suppression. Babesiosis can be passed to the foal in utero. Symptoms are infection, fever, malaise, rapid respiration and congestion. It can lead to sudden death.
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever:
This serious ailment may be fatal for horses inpatient care. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications must be monitored along with hydration and fluid balancing. Anemia often occurs. The animal is at risk for thrombocytopenia, requiring a blood transfusion. Your veterinarian must monitor the amount of fluid in the brain to prevent excessive swelling of the brain, body and lungs. Without such treatment, death can occur within days or even hours. The long-term effects on the central nervous system can be devastating.Tick Natural Terminator TNT Tick and Insect Repellent Use For Horses and Pets
